From the family:  Our hearts are broken. Mom, we truly loved spending time with you, confiding in you, and simply laughing with you. In recent years, you had been going through so much with your medical issues and always fought hard to be here for us. During that time, we were taught new meanings to the words, patience, and loving someone better and differently than how we loved you as children. You may not be here in our presence any longer, but you will always be in our hearts, souls, and minds, and you will never be far from any of them.

With all our love, Christine, Angela, Steven, Christopher, David, and Jennifer.
